Working in Home Care/Hospice
Risk & Responsibility in Preventing Workplace Violence
Violence is a more common source of injury in healthcare than other industries and Home Care employers have many workplace challenges. The Home Health Care Industry carries unique risks and hazards and the environment is uncontrolled and more highly varied than traditional health care facilities. Home health workers may also be at risk from the community surrounding the home (robbery, car theft, vandalism). In a recent OSHA enforcement action against a home care agency, the agency was found not to take the steps needed to address employee exposure to workplace violence in a patient’s home. In this webinar, Jennifer Dunlap will review the OSHA case; present the related actions OSHA can take against agencies; and review the essential components of a comprehensive program to prevent workplace violence in home care settings. This is important information for every agency to know.
Presenter: Jennifer Dunlap, Partner @ Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein
